La Mécanique et ses Applications – Anglais

Technicians at the service of recycling machines


Based near Périgueux in Rouffignac-Saint Cernin de Reilhac in the Dordogne region of France, LA MECANIQUE ET SES APPLICATIONS was founded in 1984 by Mr. Philippe VERGNAUD, a Journeyman mechanic from the Compagnons du devoir. The company maintained various equipment and machines, particularly agricultural equipment, covering all technology: mechanics, hydraulics, electricity and automation.

In the 1990s, the company specialised in equipment used in the waste sorting centres that were beginning to develop in France. It then worked for many foreign brands and provided after-sales service in France.

At the same time, the company innovated, filed patents and manufactured its own equipment for its customers. Today, it has a complete range of tailored products (indicate the link to the French page for each product):

  • Sorting line and ergonomic workstations
  • Installation for waste transfer docks
  • Alternative moving floor storage system
  • Conveyors
  • Bespoke equipment
  • Spare parts

In 2018, the company was taken over by SAS REZULTAT CONSULTING created by Frédéric ZGAINSKI. SAS REZULTAT CONSULTING is a consultancy, quality audit (ISO 9001 standard) and training company that caters to companies, local authorities and schools.

In 2020, the company recruited Sabri REVOL, an executive from the SUEZ group, to participate in its development.

In 2021, the company recruited Stéphane ETIENNE, a former employee of KADANT PAAL, JOVISA and SAVN, as technical manager.

Finally, also in 2021, the company opened an agency based in Saint-Etienne (Loire) to provide a local service to its customers. The company, which operates throughout France, thus has a base in eastern France.

  • Waste sorting and recycling industrials. We work with local and regional players as well as with major French groups with international coverage
  • Industrial sites and large and medium-sized retailers who need to process their waste
  • Finally, manufacturers of equipment used for waste sorting and recycling. In this respect, we are the partner of many French (e.g. GILLARD, SOLEN) and European (ANIS TREND, MACFAB, IMABE, BEZNER) brands, for which we provide after-sales service on all or part of the French territory.

What we can do for yout company

You sell equipment on French territory but do not have an after-sales service in France.
We can become your partner by carrying out the following missions on your behalf:

  • Consulting, audit, training and expertise
  • Regular General Equipment Inspections
  • Preventive (conditional and systematic) and corrective maintenance
  • Installation of new equipment
  • Reconditioning of equipment
  • Manufacture of customised additional equipment for your customers in parallel with the delivery of one of your machines (e.g. hopper or loading conveyor)

We can work together in different ways and are open to all suggestions that can be contracted:

  • We carry out the intervention and invoice the customer in France, committing to buy the spare parts from you,
  • We carry out the work and charge you for it. We do not have a part in the commercial relationship with your client. You are then our sole contact and we carry out the work on your behalf using your documents and procedures.
